    Blue screen "shutting down"


    All I have is a blue screen with "shutting down" on it. Forced a shutdown and even removed the battery but the blue screen is back. I have files that need to be saved on this.

    Any suggestions?

    Power button on - off several times with f8(maybe) and it started back up.

    Thanks for letting us know!

    1) BACKUP YOUR STUFF!!!! IT MAY HAPPEN AGAIN!!!

    2) For starters:
    At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
    Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
    Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).
    3) If the problem recurs:
    Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
